Synthego Pilot Awards


Thomas Jefferson University has established a partnership with Synthego, one of the leading commercial entities providing genome editing reagents and services. This partnership augments our existing relationship with the Christiana Genome Editing Institute.

All Jefferson faculty can now obtain reagents and services from Synthego at significantly reduced prices. In addition, the Provost’s Research Affairs Office has set aside funds to subsidize projects that faculty propose to conduct with Synthego. These funds can also be applied toward the purchase of reagents from Synthego, for faculty planning CRISPR/Cas9 studies in their own labs.

Thomas Jefferson University’s partnership with Synthego for genome editing reagents and services remains in place.  Subsidies are available for both reagents and services purchased from Synthego.  Synthego has significantly lowered their prices ($2500 for pools of single locus knock-outs or knock-ins, for example).  They have also expedited their project timelines by consolidating projects that use common cell lines.  Information about TJU pricing and some of these new services can be found here.
